Mobility Experiment: Remote Repositioning, Atlanta

Fact Sheet: Remote Repositioning

Using Georgia Tech-owned golf carts to prove out the technology, a person sitting in a remote location can access real-time video streamed over LTE to drive the carts. The outcome could be a more affordable and effective way to share or park vehicles using a remote “valet.”

The Experiment
Ford is testing remote control repositioning technology using vehicle-mounted cameras and real-time streaming video.
